Forum: GratefulDead Subject: 1984 Release Petition

I have done my research and realized that 1984 has been overlooked when it comes to live releases. Please sign my petition in hopes of changing that.

I consider 1984 a very hit or miss year at best, but I don't think you could go wrong picking something from the two runs that were back-to-back hits. My choices would be 7-15-84 and 7-22-84.

Thank you to anyone that has signed this. I also dig the conversation that it has started about good 84 shows.

1967 would be a bit of a stretch. Any master reels from the band's vault would be over 40 years old, and suffer from massive amounts of decay. Not to mention the limitations of the recording equipment of the day.

Challenging, but certainly not impossible. Portions of 3/18/67 and 9/3/67 have been included on official releases and most of 10/22/67 has been featured at the Taper's Section. You'd think any shows archived here are in the vault.

How about a Road Trips Vol III Number 2 from October/November 1967? With a bonus disc of the actual show from 10/31? Pre-orders accepted March 2010, ships next April...

What was good in '84 tended to be GREAT:

10/12/84

7/13/84
just 2 examples of greatness!

I would add to your list:

4/20/84, 4/26/84 (gets my vote for best show of the year), 6/30/84, 7/22/84. There are many other competent shows as well. 1984 is certainly better than 1985, and probably on par with 1983, although the fall tour of '83 was very good, but spring was hit and miss.

Actually, if this works I will want to work on 1967 than 1986. The years that have not had a proper release (box set compilations do not count like So Many Roads) are '67,'84,'86,'94,'95.

I'll bet they could rustle up something from '67. We've already recieved 3 great releases from '68 (a Road Trips, DP 22, and Two From the Vault), and we're only talking a year earlier.

Not nuts about '84 but if it's up then i'd definately second the Augusta show mentioned above.

The less said about '86, '94, and '95 the better- three of the worst years ever.

Don't worry...if you are serious, I can vouch for NC. If you are still pulling my leg, please note that I took FOUR yrs of French, dated a daughter of THE pin-up girl from Paris during WWII (I kid you not), but can only conjugate verbs (French) now.

So, I am not sure what to make of your posts...I promised Rob I would never question the virtues of a new poster til they were revealed to be something other than they purported to be..."purr--port" I suppose.

I date the DAUGHTER of the pinup gal...so, I are old, but not THAT old.

Take Noise Collector's age, multiple by his IQ, divide by huntr's IQ (another techno smarty pants), add about 50, and you get my age...

OKAY, I trust that you speak French...I was just worried you were a spammer...

The Best moment of 1984 occured without question in the mud puddle madness of Merriweather Post Pavilion, a true summer rain, and the rain poured down and the stage was deluged in lightning strikes and periodic blackouts, somewhere in the middle of the lawn section there occured a lake of mud and water and hippies... Forget seats! How about life vests!!!

I am sorry to say that one of my first duties as PM was to refer this issue to the Subcommittee of the Bureau of Oversight under the Secretary of Post-68 Indulgences, and as I understand it, CLIFF heads up this entity. I shall endeavor to determine if the motion has been tabled until the entire 68 catalogue is released (the former likely, the latter, not so...ergo...don't hold your breath).

Your motion is seconded!

There will be NO official release from 1984. There was no music played during this aweful vintage compelling enough to warrant an official release, and certainly not before the entire catalogue of performances from 1966-1977 is re-mastered and made available. Sorry!
